I’m just back from our annual two-week vacation on the Rhode Island shore in South County. We rent a cottage at the tip of Great Island in Point Judith Pond.
This is pretty much the only time that I paddle in salt water, and there are so many great places to paddle in the area. I always spend a couple of days paddling around Point Judith Pond and the Harbor of Refuge. The weather wasn’t the best with early morning wind and fog, so it was a little tougher to get out into open water. I did get over to Newport to paddle around the rocks at Kings Beach (until the fog rolled in cutting my trip short) and out to Rose Island. I didn’t get to Dutch Island or Fort Wetherill in Jamestown this year, which is a bummer. I’ll have to get those next year.
I did paddle 12 out of 14 days - not bad. All the trip reports are here:
